2021 FLA Conference: Covid- 19 Best Practices

For the safety of our guests, FLA has decided to host a HYBRID 2021 Annual Conference!  For those attending in-person, FLA and Hilton are committed to enhanced levels of cleanliness, significant attendance limits and physical distancing meeting protocols as well as mandatory masksFLA acknowledges the Governor's recent executive order (21-81), prohibiting government and businesses from requiring proof of vaccination and/or proof of negative covid tests. To that end, we will no longer require proof of vaccination and/or negative covid tests as a requirement to attend FLA's 2021 Annual Conference. However, we firmly believe that the safety of our members, partners and guests should remain our highest priority and we will maintain our policy on mandatory masks and social distancing for the duration of the 2021 Annual Conference. A virtual option with live streaming and other engaging activities is available for attendees not able to travel.
